What we're doing

Park management activities

Lane Cove National Park has management strategies in place to protect and conserve the values of this park. Visit the detailed park and fire management documents. Here is just some of the work we’re doing to conserve these values:

Managing weeds, pest animals and other threats

Pests and weeds have a significant impact on the biodiversity values Lane Cove National Park. Risk assessment for new and emerging weeds, and prioritisation of pest management strategies, take place to ensure the ongoing environmental health and sustainability of this park.

Developing visitor facilities and experiences

Lane Cove National Park takes the safety of park visitors seriously. Incident management is an ongoing consideration for NPWS, which actively engages with government on relevant policy development. Fire management approaches are also frequently reviewed in this park, along with pest management strategies to make sure we offer the best visitor experience of the area as possible.

Managing fire

NSW is one of the most bushfire prone areas in the world as a result of our climate, weather systems, vegetation and the rugged terrain. NPWS is committed to maintaining natural and cultural heritage values and minimising the likelihood and impact of bushfires via a strategic program of fire research, fire planning, hazard reduction, highly trained rapid response firefighting crews and community alerts.

Report illegal dumping

It's illegal to dump rubbish, household waste, green waste, construction waste, tyres, or vehicles in NSW national parks and reserves. You can help by reporting it anonymously. If you see illegal waste that has been dumped, or is in the process of being dumped, please take a photo and report it through the Report Illegal Dumping online form, or phone 131 555.
